The Peshawar Zalmi hitter believes he has failed to “justify his talent thus far.”
ISLAMABAD: In an exclusive interview with Geo News, Peshawar Zalmi’s young wicketkeeper-batsman Muhammad Haris expressed dissatisfaction with his performance in the ongoing Pakistan Super League season (PSL).
During an interview in Islamabad, the 21-year-old cricketer stated that he does not believe he has been able to justify his skill thus far, and that he realises he must convert his 20s and 30s into 50s, and his 50s into 80s and 100s if he wants to secure his place as a match winner.
“I’m not satisfied at all; look at how other openers have scored and where I am. “I need to develop myself, score more runs, and spend more time on the wicket,” he remarked, comparing his tournament score to that of Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman.
“I know I’m not delivering what I’m capable of, and I’m seeking advice from my seniors on how to improve myself; they’ve given a few things to me, and I’ll attempt to use those things in the upcoming matches,” the Peshawar Zalmi star stated.
In response to a query, Haris stated that he hopes to earn the title of best wicketkeeper in the competition as well as assist his team in winning the PSL trophy for the second time.
Zalmi will play Karachi Kings in Rawalpindi on March 1, and Harris is certain that his squad will put on a match-winning effort.
“The tournament is wide open and any team can make a comeback; we just have to play well and I am confident we will finish among the top four to qualify for the playoffs at the end of the league stage,” he said.
“I feel confident ahead of the game versus Karachi Kings. “We’ll be playing in Rawalpindi, which is our home field, and we’ll try to make the most of it,” Haris added.
Haris said sharing the dressing room with a top batter like Babar Azam as a “bonus,” and he is attempting to absorb everything he can from Pakistan’s captain, who is also captaining Peshawar Zalmi in the eighth season of the PSL.
“Everyone wants to play with Babar Azam, I am fortunate that I have gotten this opportunity. Babar is showing me where I need to improve both on and off the field. “He’s like an older brother to me,” he said.
